31 Faculty Development for Online Teaching

If high-quality online courses and programs are a priority for universities, then instructors must be qualified, motivated and satisfied with teaching online.[1]

It is recommended that instructors engage in some type of faculty development experience prior to designing and teaching an online course. For a list of faculty development resources, see:
